    • Christine Lewin / Tricia Dean – Christine Lewin - In The Mood
    • Christine Lewin / Tricia Dean – Tricia Dean - Don't Let It Go To Your Head
    • 1. Christine Lewin - In The Mood
    • 2. Tricia Dean - Don't Let It Go To Your Head

    Two standout versions from the Lewin sisters, available back-to-back on 45 for the first time. Classic soul turned reggae grooves produced by guitarist John Kpiaye and Adrian Joseph aka DJ Smokey Joe!

    Recorded in the mid-80s, a decade after the first advent of UK lovers rock and tailor-made for bass-heavy sound system playback, Christine Lewin’s cover of Tyrone Davis’s ‘In The Mood’ transformed his sensual after-hours classic into a female-led hit, that became a staple on Lovers playlists both then and now.

    Similarly, Tricia Dean’s sought-after cover of Jean Carn’s soul favourite ‘Don’t Let It Go To Your Head’ follows the same formula from Kpiaye and Smokey, synth-led rhythms reflecting the times rooted firmly in a local London scene.
